To all the people who tell me of their broken hearts,
be it broken by your partner, parent, child, friend..
Your heart is stronger than to ever truly be broken.
I give you this poem.
Give it to yourself.
I was broken forever
My heart lost and ruined and gone
But that was before knowing
My heart’s strength,
and then it dawned
My heart was not of glass or stone
But something ever more strong
A brilliant blinding diamond that
Shines more when cut or wronged
As sweet as your breath
As dark as your spell
As seductive the threads you’ve spun
Have you ever heard
Of a blow of breath
To put out the light of the sun?
